Keith Lee was called up to the main roster in 2020 after a fantastic few months on NXT, where he won the NXT Championship and the North American title.
In a recent interview with TV Insider, Bobby Lashley was asked if he sees himself in Keith Lee. The United States Champion agreed and also stated that the former NXT Champion could benefit from a stint in The Hurt Business.
"Now that you say that, I kind of do. When I first came in, I was a major player. Then I hovered. At certain times I faced John Cena, Booker T. and JBL [John Bradshaw Layfield], but I never broke through to get that world title. Keith has earned respect from a lot of people. He has been going out there and doing everything he has to do. I think he’s the kind of person who might need a little Hurt Business in his life to take him to that next level. He is ready to breakout, as are others."
In the same interview, Bobby Lashley stated that there are no plans currently to disband The Hurt Business.
